Desperately wanted a child at 45

Baby feet. Stock Photo credit: sykicktbLike me, she was in a new relationship and had children from her first marriage but desperately wanted a child with her current partner.

Anyway, when she failed to get pregnant, she basically accepted it wasn't to be and felt blessed with the family she already had.

She and her husband decided not to pursue any medical interventions and decided to forget about TTC [trying to conceive] and just get on with the life she already had, and looked forward to a future filled with all things good.

Anyway, yep, you've guessed it. I had an email from her at the weekend, and she is thrilled to suddenly discover herself six weeks pregnant. She turned 45 years old a couple of weeks ago.

We read about this sort of thing every day in magazines, etc., but somehow it makes it seem all so real (and achievable!) when lady luck looks down on someone we know, don't you think.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
